Benefits of a CCRC Community
A community like Bristol Glen that is certified as a CCRC or Continuing Care Retirement Community can be an excellent option for seniors. CCRCs provide certain financial incentives for seniors and their families that can make this kind of living option very attractive. It also is a more independent style of living, perfect for seniors that want to remain independent but no longer want to upkeep a home grown too large for them. For seniors who are interested in being more social, it’s easy to meet new friends and join clubs and activities.
The amenities that come with a CCRC can include things like an onsite salon, market, fitness center, activity or game room, and regularly scheduled on and off-site activities like a book club, art classes, and trips out for lunch or to a broadway show. Transportation is usually provided. You can enjoy all the advantages of a vibrant community setting while always being able to easily walk to your apartment and close the door to have a moment of privacy.
Never Needing To Change Your Address Again
If the level of assistance you need changes, your CCRC plan is designed to grow with you without ever having to leave the comfort of your new community. A CCRC has all living styles (Independent living, assisted living, and healthcare under one roof and your care is tailored to your individual needs. Whether you’re looking for just some daily assistance or personal care or you end up needing health monitoring and rehab, all these options are available to you within the Bristol Glen campus.
Various Levels of Independence
While most seniors think a senior living community takes away independence, it is quite the opposite. You’re relieved of the obligations and responsibilities you may not want anymore, like keeping up with a clean home and cooking a few times a day. You now have free time to do all the things you’ve always wanted to do. Maybe you’ve been waiting to take up knitting for years, or maybe you finally have the time to learn a second language. Perhaps you’ll join a local bridge club, or learn to paint. Whatever it is you want to do, you can live abundantly in a CCRC. Rest assured that a community like Bristol Glen will do everything to provide the quality of life and activities you or your loved one are seeking.
